Initial Consultation

We meet at your home and I listen your thoughts, dreams, and site problems. For an effective initial consultation together, you’ll complete a brief questionnaire.

You’ll receive individual design solutions to your landscape problems and present ways to create your dream garden. My hourly rate is charged for this service.

Design Planning Estimate

After the consultation,  you’ll have design solutions to your landscape and gardens, and I’ll know your needs. Off the clock,  you’ll receive your free design planning estimate.

Design Begins

With a half deposit the design work begins: I measure and photograph, write a detailed estimate proposal of the design objectives, concepts, and work to be done that becomes the basis for the plan. Then I begin to work up the design solutions and ideas in my CAD program.

Review Meetings Draft Plan & Final Plan

We’ll meet and review the draft version of your beautiful landscape plan designed to meet your objectives. Tweak if necessary. And meet again to review the final plan.

Final Landscape Plan IncludesService-Ha 9 12 13

The finished custom design plan includes scaled plan, color highlights, a plant list (with descriptions and number of plants), color plant photo booklet, garden accessories photo booklet, and construction notes detailing style and materials.

Installation Estimates and Project Management/Design Implementation

I use qualified, experienced, and insured contractors. I gather estimates, schedule dates, and co-ordinate all work phases and contractors.

Importantly, I layout the plan according to the approved design and make sure it is installed that way. We review it as the landscape is installed so that the gardens are just the way you want them.

I also source and purchase the plants, lighting, and garden accessories.


I will recommend experienced contractors to maintain your new landscapes & garden.
